OCLC Works in Progress Webinar Series: Linked Open Data for Digitized Special Collections

PIs Tim Cole and MJ Han, and project staff Peter Organisciak and Jacob Jett will be participating in OCLC’s “Works in Progress” webinar series on Wednesday, June 8. The webinar will describe the in-progress enrichment and transformation of metadata in two of our pilot digitized image collections at the University of Illinois, and the challenges of turning metadata strings into URIs. It’ll also include a discussion on the expressiveness and our use of schema.org, detail how we map traditional metadata into schema.org RDF and outline how we plan to provide users with new functionalities that leverage increased connectedness and integration with other Linked Open Data resources.
